In a recent decision (Roppen Transportation Services Pvt Ltd & Anr. v. State of Maharashtra & Ors.), the Bombay High Court recommended that the Maharashtra government give a proposal for licencing bike taxis significant consideration.
Rapido, a bike taxi aggregator company, filed a petition contesting the State government’s decision to deny such entities a licence to operate two-wheeled bike taxi aggregators before a division bench of Justices GS Patel and SG Dige.
The bench advised the State to establish a policy and urged it to think about the advantages of having two-wheeled transportation.
